Honolulu's Gourmet Brunch Spot: Farmhouse Cafe

Met up with a few friends for a workday lunch at Farmhouse Cafe. It's not as crowded as I remember it to be, but the last two times I've dine here were on the weekends, so maybe it's slower on the weekdays. 

My favorite thing to eat here is the Potato Mille-Feuille. On the menu, it says "order in advance", but we ordered it when we placed our order for our meal, and it was the first thing that came out of the kitchen, so I'm not quite sure what they mean by "order in advance". 

It's made of layers of potato, flavored with lots of butter. My favorite part is the crisp outer layers - it's almost like eating potato chips. 

Here's what we each ordered for our entrees:

Oeuf en Muerette (poached eggs, in red wine burgundy sauce, pearl onion, pork belly, mushrooms)

The Gourmet Burger (100% natural American Wagyu, onoin date jam, Gorgonzola bleu cheese, Demi-glace & Potato Mille-Feuille)

The Banyard Sandwich (Braised brisket, creamy horseradish, picked onions, Havarti cheese, Artisan bread)

Gourmet Ham and Cheese Sandwiches Croque Madame (Kurobuta ham, Emmental cheese, Mornay sauce, Artisan bread)

We could not pass on the Farmhouse Signature Beignets, with Grand Marnier Chocolate Sauce and Strawberry Hibiscus Jam. 

Honestly, the Potato Mille-Feuille was the star of the show today. The burger was ordered "medium", but it appeared to be undercooked. Note - if you like ketchup with your burgers, bring your own - they don't have ketchup here. The braised brisket in the Barnyard Sandwich was tough and very fatty. It wasn't the type of brisket that I'm used to (the kind that is so tender you don't need a knife to cut it). 

If I were to come here again, I think I would try the crepes or the Brioche French Toast.
